Named in honor of conservationist & author Aldo Leopold, this cozy one room cabin is ideal for a couple or a family of four. With natural rough cut pine interior (harvested from the property) and built-in queen bunk beds, Leopold’s Cabin makes a great “petite retreat”.

The space

Enjoy nearly 60 private acres with over 1/2 mile of private river frontage! After a day of exploring the area, you’ll enjoy this peaceful little cabin as a place to curl up with a good book or magazine and unwind.

Please note: Full bathroom is detached & shared with one other small cabin. This is a “rustic cabin” which has electricity, but no running water. Guests are provided water for drinking, dishes, etc.

We offer four cozy cabins located on a private riverfront estate of nearly 60 private acres in the Tug Hill Region of Central New York.

Cabin rentals offered nightly, weekly and monthly. Many area activities including fishing, swimming, tubing, hiking, bird watching, downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and much more.

Close & convenient access to Sylvan Beach, Oneida Lake, Camden, Blossvale, Rome, Utica & Syracuse areas.

Guest access

This cabin is lovely and cozy! Only stayed for one night, but wish we could have stayed for longer because of how great it was. Would definitely recommend for anyone who is looking for a quiet area, and Christophe was very helpful and welcoming.

Accommodating, friendly, and warm, describes our stay. Meeting host families and in this case also their loving lap dogs was a special treat. QUIET/PEACEFUL/SERENE

I can't even begin to describe what a wonderful experience I had staying here. The cabin is rustic, the hosts are wonderful, the property is beautiful and the flow of the river relaxing. Even though I was in the area for work, I wanted something more peaceful than a standard hotel ... and I got that in spades. Several other options on the property including a 1500 sq ft home and a very Scandinavian styled cabin. My favorite part was everything, I will be back every time I come to the area.

The cabin was nice and cozy, I had a wonderful and relaxing time. You wouldn't expect internet access in such a quiet and out of the way place, but it worked great which is awesome. The surrounding property is warm in the afternoon, cool in the evening. Lots of room relax. Jessica was a very kind host, the owner Chris was also very helpful. I recommend wellnesste to anyone looking for beautiful grounds and peace and quiet, looking forward to visiting again in the future.

We're the Marin-Gerlach Family... Christophe (French), Karen (Norwegian) and our daughters (Meghan and Sophie). We love to have interesting outdoor-lovin' guests visit our little slice of heaven and enjoy the rejuvenating energy of nature!

Amidst 60 acres of riverfront property, trails through forests you will find that we are simple. We aim to sustain ourselves without wasting natural energies and resources. If you wish to get away from the hectic duties and obligations of society then Wellnesste is the place for you.

We enjoy living in the peace & quiet of the Central NY countryside. We love having kind, fun, interesting people come out for a visit and enjoy the outdoors in our cabins. We've been lucky enough to host wonderful human beings from around the world (France, New Zealand, Germany, England, Ireland, etc.) and around the states (too many to list). We hope that you'll consider coming out for a visit to enjoy all of the natural beauty that upstate New York (CNY/Adirondacks) has to offer.
